HIS Classified OC Card
Turbo cards are faster than regular cards! The card is bios-overclocked out of the box with 1100 MHz/ 4800 MHz core clock and memory clock respectively, offering the performance edge for gamers!
IceQ– Cooler, Quieter.
IceQ ensures effective cooling when there is another card in front blocking the fan inlet, such as in CrossFire setup.
By expelling the hot air, IceQ removes all the heat generated by the GPU out of the computer chassis, prevents the hot air from accumulating inside and enhancing the overall stability. The more crowded the chassis, the greater will be the impact.
The demonstration shows that the IceQ does outperform the 3rd party cooler in closed environment. Cool air is drawn from both sides of the fan and hot air is forced out of the computer case. This ensures effective cooling when there is another card in front blocking the fan inlet, such as in CrossFire setup."
Black Hole Impeller
Black hole impeller ensures large amount of cool air is ready. It draws cool air from both sides of the fan even there is another card blocking the fan inlet on the front side of fan.
With IceQ, the card is up to 25 °C cooler than the reference cooler.
The super large 80 x 21.5mm single blower fan draws massive amount of cool air to cool the GPU directly.
The fan is extremely durable with a life span of up to 50,000 hours!
4 wide heatpipes optimize cooling performance by removing heat from the core area.
The extra large 35 x 30mm copper heatsink provides a large heat dissipation area.
The card also features fan control and fan monitoring, you are able to read fan speed & Asic temperature from CCC or software.
IceQ is one of the quietest coolers. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, working. The card is quiet in 2D mode and remains quiet whether you are gaming, online socializing, entertaining or working.
The card is up to 6dB quieter than the reference cooler.

HIS has won over 1700 awards with AMD graphic solutions from major media worldwide.
· -Look of this IceQ version
· -Silent cards when idle
· -Interesting OC
“Proposed at around 160 euros, so 320 euros in Crossfire, we can’t reproach anything to the card. Powerfull, contained noise, the GTX780 we have put against is not offering much more than the crossfire setup except PhysX and the assurance of being free of multi-GPU potential problems (but still small).
Peoples that have small budget can start by ordering one card and add a second one few months later in order to boost their PC system.
The factory OC of the Turbo version is not really important (and do not offer real plus). It’s a pity but on the other hand the Crossfire offer from 150% to 200% performance compare to one card what is impressive so we go forget this detail”.
“With this Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo HIS and AMD wants to compete the GTX 660 from the other brands. It’s a winning bet : for a quite similar price the card offer a bite more performances the mister NVIDIA cards with a small environmental impact. The custom cooling system IceQ shows it’s total efficiency making this HD 7870 IceQ Turbo a card you should put on your short list if you are considering to change your graphic card with a 200€ budget.”
- Efficient IceQ Cooling System
- Quite well price
- Almost silent
PCWorld.fr - Rated 4 stars of 5
Pros: Good performances, low temperatures, power consumption
Comptoir-hardware - Rated 4 out of 5
"The HIS HD 7870 IceQ Turbo 2GB is without a doubt worth every penny for this fantastic high overclocking potential which is made possible by an icy cool temperature. This is why it deserves nothing less than our Gold Award." HardwareLOOK - Gold Award
"Система охлаждения порадовала своей эффективностью и бесшумностью. Повышенные частоты и приятный разгон идут очень хорошим бонусом. Все это ... делает видеокарту хорошим кандидатом на покупку в производительный компьютер." Ferra.ru
"The HIS Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo in terms of performance already surpasses many other graphics card from AMD Radeon HD 7950-series - and is often in-sufficient for energy. Good value for money!" PC Welt "Price-Performane Award"
"The HIS 7870 IceQ 2GB graphics card had no problem with any of the bench mark tests we preformed and in every test smooth frame rates were achieved. Having 2GB of video memory really helped with games like the resource heavy ARMA 2 Operation Arrowhead and even though the frame rate did dip down to 37 at one point for 99% of the test the frame rate remained at an health 55 frames per second which is only 8 frames less than NVidia’s high-end GTX 580." The Last Resort "Bronze Award"
"The Radeon 7870 is one of our favourite cards currently on the market due to the performance they offer for the price, and the IceQ model that we looked at today from HIS proves our point by showing us how extreme it really can be in all aspects and areas. Congratulations HIS, you have a real winner on your hands here." eTeknix "Editor's Choice"
"Run cooler than the reference design. Fantastic performance. Good ‘out of the box’ clock speeds. Quiet." KitGuru "Must Have Award"
"The HIS Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo outperforms other 7950 cards in terms of performance. It is also energy saving. The card also keeps temperatures in a good frame and the fan is not noisy." PC Welt
"When all is said and done though, the HIS HD7870 is the fastest card of the Pitcairn family we have tested to date and so clearly deserves our Elite award. I struggled long and hard over what 'medal' to give the GPU. I could easily dismiss the HIS as a Gold winner and to be truthful, I almost did as it really is that good. Were the card not priced so close to the HD7950, Gold is the award that the card would receive and deservedly so as it performs extremely well in all areas bar one - the price. It therefore, like the other HD7870's, has to settle for Silver, albeit a very shiny, highly polished silver!" Vortez "Silver Award"
"The real differentiating factor is the IceQ cooler; it’s simply leaps and bounds ahead of any other 7870 we’ve seen so far." AnandTech
"The really good news for potential buyers is that this extra performance really comes at no added cost, as the HIS Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo is currently retailing for $359 along with virtually every other HD 7870 graphics card." Legion Hardware "Performance Award"
"Functionality is very good, I can't help but keep singing praise for the HIS IceQ HSF, it really is so good. To bring a load temperature down by 11C is no easy feat, and to do it while remaining virtually silent is something that all AIB partners need to aspire to. There was some overclocking headroom but the fact that it was already factory overclocked on the core to 1100MHz meant that there wasn't much more to have cooling this beast on air." Benchmark Reviews "Silver Tachometer Award"
"We'd recommend the HIS R7870 ICEQ TURBO for those who demand a little more performance without the need to do the tweaking themselves. The factory overclock really is decent enough we feel. The ICEQ cooler, as stated .. you either hate or love the design. But it is working well and offers you a really silent product" Guru3D "Recommended Product"
"It's great to see the IceQ cooler come to the new HD 7000 series and th emid $300 US HD 7870 gets to take real advantage of it. The HIS HD 7870 Turbo is just great! Overall TweakTown Rating 95%." TweakTown "Editor's Choice Award"
"The HIS 7870 IceQ X Turbo is a big card in several regards, not only in physical size but overall performance and gaming value. At a price of about $380 to $400 depending on the specific model, It's an outstanding product, beating a GTX 580 while running improbably cool and costing less. If you want excellent horsepower without shelling out a small fortune, this card is a top pick." PureOverclock "Editors Choice"
"The HIS HD 7870 IceQ Turbo 2GB GDDR5 Video Card is the best bang-for-the-buck video card on the market, hands down. It offers amazing performance and dollar for dollar is impossible to beat. And remember you can always add another one in a Crossfire setup for added performance. It has BUY ME written all over it!" 3D GameMan "Kickass Gameman's Choice"
